SkinPen Microneedling

 

Discover Radiant Skin with SkinPen

Welcome to The Canmore Clinic, your premier destination for advanced medical aesthetic treatments in Dunfermline, Fife. We are proud to offer SkinPen microneedling, the most superior collagen remodelling microneedling device on the market.

What is SkinPen?

SkinPen Precision is a handheld device that stands out as the first FDA-cleared microneedling device. It is designed to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process, prompting tissue remodelling without causing scar tissue formation.

What Areas Can SkinPen Treat?

SkinPen can be used to treat any area where there is skin, including:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Stomach
  • Thighs

How Does SkinPen Work?

SkinPen creates hundreds to thousands of micro skin punctures per second to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process. This promotes tissue remodelling without causing scar tissue formation.

Features and Benefits

  • Advanced Technology: The most precise and safest microneedling device available.
  • Effective Treatment: Targets fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and more.
  • Minimal Downtime: Quick recovery with minimal side effects.
  • Sterile and Safe: The device has a fully sterile, disposable tip that prevents contamination.

How is SkinPen Different from Other Microneedling Devices?

SkinPen Precision is the most advanced and safest microneedling device available. Unlike other devices, it creates precise microchannels by puncturing the tissues cleanly without tearing. The sterile, disposable tip is separate from the main body of the device, ensuring no backward contamination.

Treatment Details

  • Duration: Treatments take between 40 minutes to 1.5 hours.
  • Number of Treatments: A minimum of 3 treatments spaced one month apart. Depending on the condition being addressed, up to 6 treatments may be needed.
  • Cost: £200 for one area, with increments of £50 for each additional area.

The Patient Journey at The Canmore Clinic

  1. Consultation: A thorough consultation to discuss expected results, how the device works, and confirm pricing.
  2. Preparation: Before and progress pictures are taken and remain with your medical notes. The treatment area is numbed with cream for 20 minutes.
  3. Procedure: Conducted in a comfortable lying down position on one of our Cloud treatment beds. Regular checks ensure comfort levels are maintained.
  4. Aftercare: A cooling and calming product is applied post-treatment.

Expected Effects and Downtime

  • Immediate Effects: Skin may appear flushed, similar to the effect of a sauna or exercise.
  • Post-Treatment Care: You will receive post-treatment advice and products. For 24 hours, avoid using or applying anything to the treated area.
  • Long-Term Effects: The treatment promotes collagen production, with effects building over time.

Does It Hurt?

Patient feedback rates discomfort at 2/10, with many finding the sensation “tickly.”

Side Effects and Considerations

  • Side Effects: Detailed information on potential side effects will be provided during your consultation.
  • Who Cannot Have SkinPen: Some conditions and factors may preclude you from treatment, which will be assessed during your consultation.
  • Combination with Other Treatments: Discuss with our team how SkinPen can complement other treatments you are receiving.
  • Pre-Treatment Advice: Specific instructions on what to avoid before treatment will be provided.
